Title VIII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) granted the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) enhanced authority to supervise financial market utilities that are designated as systemically important by the Financial Stability Oversight Council (financial market utilities are defined to comprise a subset of the entities that, outside the United States, are generally called financial market infrastructures or FMIs). In addition, the Board may have direct supervisory authority over other FMIs subject to its jurisdiction. The Board has approved the use of the ORSOM (Organization; Risk Management; Settlement; Operational Risk and Information Technology (IT); and Market Support, Access, and Transparency) rating system in reviews of FMIs by the Board and, under delegated authority, the Federal Reserve Banks (collectively, the Federal Reserve).
